Adopt-a-Family for Christmas!
Every year at Christmas, Team Mathias adopts families from the clinic (in treatment or bereaved families) and with the help of the wonderful social workers we get the families’ wish /need lists.
This year, 2019, we loaded up 4 SUVs from top to bottom with some great stuff–all wrapped and labeled thanks to the hardworking Team Mathias elves. We had 6 bikes, a car seat, microwave, kitchen supplies, dishes, utensils, bedding, shoes, winter coats, clothes, toys and more toys, gift cards to favorite restaurants, grocery stores, gas cards and much more for 5 whole families who needed help making Christmas happen this year.
We were so excited to deliver everything to the clinic. We managed to fill up a whole storage unit and can only hope we were able to bring the magic of Christmas to these families and to take away the stress of holiday shopping & spending.
Once again we couldn’t do any of this without the love and generosity of our community of supporters who believe in our mission and everything that we do to help the families affected by childhood cancer. Please know that your donations are greatly appreciated (and are tax deductible!). We are also proud to say that every penny that is ever donated to us is going back to support our mission as we are 100% volunteer-run.
